package that would entail and lastly, and perhaps most importantly, you need host government. the libyan government in this case, support to allow u.s. military boots on the ground to provide sort of the defensive security perimeter around the benghazi compound. now, i spoke to a senior administration official who said they have been having regular meetings twice daily, secure video teleconferences on updates of the investigation. there has been regular deputies committee meetings hosted by dennis mcdonough, the deputy national security advisor and discussions regarding libyan support and cooperation, my law enforcement source was quite clear, it's not that the libyans haven't been cooperative. there have been discussions that the libyans were concerned that they themselves couldn't provide the sort of comprehensive security to protect the fbi team and that there were concerns on the libyan part about having a u.s. military presence on the ground. all of that said, anderson, as you point out, 18 days later after the attack, the fbi today sort of indicated to me through a senior law enfor

. whether or not the libyan government could have delivered on that promise, we'll never know. what we do know is that no fbi agents are in benghazi, according to our reporting, the crime scene remains unprotected and the official line seems to be everything is going fine with the libyan government and the fbi investigation. as we said, new details tonight. national security analyst fran townsend got some of them. so did cnn contributor bob baer. fran, of course, is the former white house homeland security advisor, a current member of the cnn's external advisory board. she recently traveled to libya with her employer, mcandrew and forbes. bob is a former cia officer with deep experience in the middle east and the arab world. also on the phone from tripoli, cnn cnn's jomana karachi. i'm a little surprised, fran, how they can say -- how they are painting what's happening on the ground in libya, especially based on what you're hearing from sources. >> look, anderson, we have not -- this is not the first international terrorism investigation regrettably going back to the east africa embassy b

. >> does the government have responsible to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have care today? >> we do provide care for someone who doesn't have insurance. if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die, we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. some provide that care through clinics, some provide the care through emergency rooms. in my state we found a solution that worked for my state. i wouldn't take what we did in massachusetts and say to texas, you have to take the massachusetts model. >> he points to the emergency room as a viable alternative for the uninsured. that's precisely his massachusetts model, that's what he's trying to eliminate by providing universal coverage. it was mitt romney's rational for his own plan back in 2010. here he is back then on msnbc's "morning joe." >> do you believe i

obama. says lavr ishes praise on reverend wright, claims the government spends too much on suburbs, not enough on "our neighborhoods." earlier, we played the clip about where he praised jeremiah wright. and now the difference of the response of hurricane katrina to hurricane andrew. >> down in new orleans, there is a federal law called the stafford act. the local government has to give a match. here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waved the stafford act. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. and that was the right thing to do when hurricane andrew struck in florida, they said look at this devastation, don't expect you to put that money in. what's happening in new orleans? where is your dollar, where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the but let hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> president obama, that was five years ago. decide for yourself whether this shows a side of barack obama never been seen before as the daily caller suggestsor nothing new. the president

requirement as it related to food stamps. taking work requirements out of government assistance is, in my opinion, a very bad course to take and creates a culture of dependency. we help people who need help. we want to help people that need help. but the idea of removing work requirements i think is a mistake. >> keeping them honest, as you just heard, jim acosta say politic fact gave that rating a pants on fire. the "washington post" gave it four pinocchios and quote, a mitt romney tv ad claims the obama administration has adopted a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements. the plan does neither of those things. back to the claim governor romney made about correcting ads or statements if there's anything factually wrong or amiss as he said, jim acosta called and e-mailed the romney campaign to ask if they could give any examples of that happening. so far he's gotten no response. he joins me now. so does lori robinson. jim, you pressed governor romney on that welfare ad which independent fact checkers have said was false. he didn't back down. not only did he not bac

government that they have through the state department and then they put the questions and then you wait for that information to come back before you can follow up. not ideal way to do an investigation. i want to play something for our viewers. this is from last thursday, secretary clinton said this about the investigation. >> and we are at the very early stages of the fbi investigation. the team reached libya earlier this week. >> no mention of being on the ground there. is she splitting hairs here? >> in fairness to the secretary. it may be that she wanted to be coy about where they were. the fact is, it is not clear that they were inside libya and we understand that there was infighting and it took them longer than they would have liked to get into the country. they still have not gotten permission to go. >> have you ever heard of anything like this whether it is beaurocratic infighting or i guess not approval from the home country? have you ever heard of anything like this? >> i have never heard of it, anderson, this is just outrageous, in a sense that libya is obviously on the

to know govern orromnor romney so more important debate. i think he has to be presidential. i think he has to convey the kind of person that people would be comfortable with as president. i tend to think we kind of score this as if it's a boxing match or basketball game. >> you know what it's like to debate mitt romney. i don't want to rehash any old wounds but i do want to play just some of the thing you guys got into and ask what he's like as a debater. >> governor romney, was new york a sanctuary city? >> absolutely. called itself a sanctuary city. in fact, in the welfare reform act president clinton brought forward said they were going to end the sanctuary policy of new york city, the mayor actually brought a suit to maintain its sanctuary city status. >> it's unfortunate, but mitt generally criticizes people in a situation in which he's had far the worst record. for example, in his case, there were six sanctuary cities. he did nothing about them. there was even a sanctuary mansion at his own home, illegal immigrants were being employed. not, not being turned in to anybody or by

of a popular protest. more damningly, this, quote, multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed the committee that prior to the september 11 attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the letter goes on to detail a series of attacks and incidents in libya that formed the basis for those calls for more security resources, resources that the letter alleges were denied by officials in washington. we'll have more on that angle shortly. first, arwa damon joins me. she's back from libya and joins me here in new york. very good to see you safe and sound. walk me back. you were at the site three days after the attack. you have some still photographs that have never been seen before. describe what we see. >> well, the first in these photographs is basically the exterior of the main building at the compound itself. this is the building where the ambassador resided, and the right hand portion of the building is where the so-called safe room was supposed to be. as you can see, the burning all occurred inside the building itself. >

, that's not such an indication that the government is in trouble. but when the senior figures for the government start to defect, then that's a sign that there is some sort of institutional crumbling going on. there were things he was expected to do that he was not comfortable with doing. that he was quite opposed to. that the iranian government then perceives him as being their opponent. so you're perceived as being part of the enemy when you're not doing what it is that they want you to do. >> anderson, you can see that the way the lawyer couches the phrase is very, very careful but this does appear to be premeditated. the cameraman does have a wife and children. they left iran it appears sometime before thursday, when the photographer defected following the u.n. general assembly. his family is trying to come to the united states and the lawyer is now working on that, anderson. >> is he required to check in with anyone while he's waiting for his application to be processed? how does that work? >> really, he's not. even though he was part of this high-ranking delegation, his lawyer s

closer. they have conducted interviews of the state department and government personnel in libya at the time of the attack. they have gotten as far as tripoli but never gotten to benghazi. they made a request that the crime scene be secured as we know from public reporting, the state department, we don't know whether or not the state department put that request though libyans and whether or not it was denied or what happened to it. what we know for sure is the crime scene was never secured and the senior law enforcement official i spoke to said if we get there now it is not clear it will be of any use to us. the third and critical and astonishing point to me is one of the things we have to do is question the individuals, the libyans have in custody to get to the bottom of this and understand what they are learning. in fact, they made that request with from the state department. that was denied by libya. so the fbi has to pass questions from the state department to the libyan government. they put the questions and you wait like a child's game of telephone, the information to come back be
